Court Determines Indian Woman Cannot Be Prosecuted For False Rape Claim

A 17-year-old woman will not receive any sanction, despite an admission to lodging a false rape complaint against several men. Judge Vikas Dhull said that the woman could not be prosecuted due to India’s “Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act,” barring punishment of minors who make false complaints or give false information.

The court dismissed the charges against all the men, stating that the prosecution failed to prove its case. It appears that her false deposition was the only evidence against them.
